Intuit Credit Halts Payments on Firearm Related Services, Businesses Left Scrambling!
Credit service shuts down payments on all gun purchases!
Intuit stopped processing credit card payments because sales were gun-related, according to the NY Post.
It is a question that is a difficult one to answer. Does a company have the right to refuse services/businesses based on personal socio-political beliefs?
The answer is yes. Whether you like it or not, a company has the right to refuse service/sales to whomever they deem because of their personal beliefs. This is Capitalism.
Just as a Christian baker has the right to refuse to make a wedding cake for a same sex couple based on religious beliefs, Intuit has the right to decline services for “firearm related sales”. Even if you don’t agree with their [Intuit] safe space, participation trophy, I need to go into a cry closet, anti-gun David Hogg shrine building, butt hurt progressive liberal communist stance; they still have the right to refuse their services.
“Some of the payments stopped didn’t even involve firearms, but simply T-shirts and coffee mugs and gun safety classes, according to small business owners.
As a result, the businesses had to scramble to track down customers to get them repay their bills after Intuit credited back to customers’ accounts the purchases — even if the T-shirt was already shipped or the class already taken, one businessman told The Post.
At Gunsite Academy, a Paulden, Ariz., company that provides marksmanship training in addition to selling guns that ship to a licensed gun shop near the customer’s home, Ken Campbell was dinged by Intuit’s action.” (Read More)
Multiple reports are coming in from multiple firearms businesses that Intuit is screwing them over on services that have already been rendered as well.
Honor Defense, a Georgia firearms maker that ships only to other dealers, had a similar experience with Intuit.
Gary Ramey, president of Honor Defense, told Gun Talk radio host Tom Gresham that Intuit “reversed charges” on his customers, as well.
